About 10 years ago (man, I’m old), I lived in Paris for 10 months as an Erasmus year during my degree. And I fell in love. What a city. I go back as often as time and money allow, and this weekend I went back for a quick one night trip with two of my closest friends. We spent a wonderful two days wandering the streets (still beguiling despite the – at times – torrential rain), eating the delicious food and drinking the wine. But the less said about the wine the better.
One night really isn’t enough – even if you’ve already been to Paris several times, and most of the time I was there I was already planning what I would do on my next visit.
These are just a few of the photos I took during my visit, hope you enjoy!
One of the highlights was when we stumbled across a market by the Seine to advertise the South West of France to holiday-going Parisians. We sampled a lot of fine produce, and were even rewarded with a bag of fresh garlic and apples – which of course we couldn’t say no to. And I can now say it’s some of the finest garlic I have ever tasted. English supermarkets just don’t compare.
So I hope it’s not too long before I go back. There’s so much more to see – two days is only enough to make me want more. Paris, je t’aime.
